I can't say enough about my stay at Casa Del Mar...from the booking process with the owner, Marcia Kirby to everything from start to finish. A wonderful welcoming, attentive staff to take care of everything you would possibly need is such a refreshing difference! The convenience and proximity to the town of akumal is ideal! This lovely home has ample parking that is safe and secured and is monitored by regular security staff, not the norm for many properties here in the area. The house has a great kitchen, dining and living space for one who likes to cook or just relax with friends. Plenty of Dvds available and a modest selection of tv channels although I really did not utilize as much as I expected anyway! A comfortable walk out back area overlooking the ocean where you can enjoy the evening breezes is a delight! The pool in the front of the house is always clean and well maintained, so refreshing! Also a nice table and chairs and chaise loungers out there as well. One bedroom down and two up, I so enjoyed the master bedroom on the ocean side of the house with its double sliding door balcony with hammock and chairs, etc. Very private out back and no fear of getting caught with your curtains open! Even as there is no beach access as it is a rocky fronted property, I did not miss that personally as it is so close to town and I prefer the akumal Bay entry anyway for the beach. The house manager, Angel addressed some minor requests immediately and stopped by here and there during my 3 week stay. Very professional and not intrusive at all! I would highly recommend this beautiful property for the peace and quiet, cleanliness and ample amenities for guests and certainly for the comfort and efficiency provided by the wonderful staff!
Response from the manager Thank you so much for choosing Casa del Mar for your vacation. We appreciate your nice comments very much! We hope that you return again next fall!
“A True Vacation Experience!”
Gorgeous Views! Excellent location! Casa was lovely and well appointed with everything we needed! I will be back!
Response from the manager Thank you so much EK for choosing Casa del Mar for your vacation. We will all look forward to your annual return to Akumal! It is always such a pleasure to have you as our guest.
“A comfortable, gracious rejuvenating retreat! complete with cha”
This very well built and sturdy Casa met our every need, as did the very friendly and capable staff. Casa del Mar has a charming, and well stocked kitchen with all you need to create a meal or just greet the morning with a cup of Joe. There are ample outdoor spaces to enjoy the Sea breezes and a refreshing pool for cooling off in the heat of the day. The home has a great air flow which helps keep the living areas cool even without the aC, which are there in each bedroom, to cool you while you sleep. The property manager angel, greeted us within hours of arrival and let us know how to reach him should we need anything. Our needs for safe key and cord for charging golf cart were quickly met by he and Carlos, who takes care of the gardens and pool. Carlos was kind enough to wash our rental car and carry massage table out for the masseuse. Mari kept the house immaculate and did some laundry for our group when asked. She usually arrived while we were leaving, but was very friendly and warm. The house has great character in it's furnishings, architecture and artwork, in a sublime way it warms you and makes you feel relaxed. The beds were comfortable and bedding was nice and the right weight for the temperatures. The views from this home are tranquil and the location on the iron shore affords much privacy. Our guard Santos was there to provide added security at night, although I always feel very safe in akumal. We are a short distance to shopping and all of the great places to eat in the area. We ate out quite a bit, but did some shopping at the very convenient grocery store on the highway as well, for quick meals and snacks at the Casa. It's easy to be as active as you wish in this place as there is much to enjoy here or in nearby akumal Bay, Yalku Lagoon, or further south to neighboring bays and Tulum. This was our first time to visit the ruins in Tulum and they surprised us with interest and a wonderful guide. We would gladly stay in this Casa again!
When booking a house in akumal I had many people to please - a husband who likes privacy, teenagers who like to be in walking distance of town, toddlers who like to have a pool, and me who loves some luxury. The staff could not have been better. The gardener, cleaning woman, security, and manager were always around if I needed anything. Casa del Mar is a tasteful, inviting home with every you could possible need. The kitchen is stocked with cooking supplies, plenty of towels, a great assortment of movies, pool toys, sand toys etc... Yet the house is not overcrowded with stuff. Maria comes to clean every day leaving it spotless, and I also gave her our laundry to do. The pool is cleaned every day, and the grounds are impeccable. The house sits on the beach between half moon bay and akumal beach. It is on a rocky coast so you cannot swim there, but either beach is a five minute walk away. This gives you privacy and a great view. I loved the town, a laid back beach town with tons to do for nature lovers, beach goers, and sun soakers. My four eldest children became certified scuba divers, we snorkeled with sea turtles in akumal beach and with every variety of fish at Yal Ku Lagoon. The little kids visited Xel-Ha water park (look that up on trip advisor, it's worth it). But if all you want to do is sit on the beach with a Mojito, the best bar ever is on Half moon bay, La Buena Vita! They have swings at the bar and happy hour every night. The food is really great too. If you want to explore the area, there is tons to see. We drove over to Tulum for the day and saw the ruins and the beaches there. There are many cenotes but the popular ones on highway 307 can be expensive so we opted to take a day trip to Vallidolid and saw the dzipnup cenote which was amazing, free for the kids and practically empty. Coba also has some fabulous ruines and 3 beautiful cenotes. Fabulous House! Awesome Beach! Amazing vacation!
“Great Place for a 60th Birthday”
We had a group of friends and also rented Nicte Ha next door and everyone had an excellent experience. Some of our friends want to make it an annual visit. The house is great Maria is great and would highly recommend Casa Del Mar for anyone who wants to experience akumal.
“A week in paradise!”
Casa del Mar was a perfect place for us to enjoy our week away from the world. There were 4 of us (two 20-something kids and 2 adults) on a family trip. We were looking for a private retreat that was comfortable and in a beautiful location. Casa del Mar exceeded any of our expectations. The service was great. Mari kept everything very clean and cooked us two wonderful meals. Don't leave without experiencing her cooking! The gardener was also very nice and did a great job keeping the yard and pool (and our rental car) looking immaculate. The house itself had everything that was listed in the description and everything worked well. Our only complaint was that the beds could have been a little more comfortable, but everything else was very nice. We honestly didn't spend much time inside the house when there was so much else to do, but it was a nice place to come home to at night. The house has 3 bedrooms (2 rooms with king beds and 1 room with a twin and a full). This was great for the 4 of us, but you could easily stay here with 3 couples or 2 couples and their children. The house never felt crowded and you never feel exposed to the surrounding houses. Akumal was a sleepy little town that had everything we needed. We enjoyed many of the restaurants in both akumal and Half Moon Bay. There was always so much to do. We divided our time between akumal Bay (wonderful snorkeling with turtles), Half Moon Bay (very shallow so great for those who are not the most confident swimmers), the Tulum Ruins, local cenotes, Yal-ku (another great snorkeling location), and the beaches of Tulum. We also loved spending time next to our private pool. Casa del Mar provided us with a great home base for our trip to paradise. Highlights would include the location (what a view), the great service, and the pool. We would love to return to Casa del Mar and hope to do so in the future.
“Most relaxing vacation in years.”
My wife and I recently stayed at Casa del Mar in akumal. On this occasion we traveled with three other people. None of them were experienced travelers. All were a little nervous about what they had seen on the news of traveling to Mexico. Everyone of us had fantastic memorable vacations. Any nerves about traveling to Mexico dissolved after a very short time in Casa del Mar. The staff at Casa del Mar were beyond attentive and helpful. They arranged for a driver for us for an evening Fiesta in Tulum. Fresh bottled water was never short on supply. Every request was met with a smile, and the house was kept in meticulous order inside and out.The gardener even washed our rental car each morning. We cooked at the house about 1/2 of our meals. The kitchen appliances and cookware was easy to find, plentiful and in great shape. The setting in akumal is perfect. Casa del Mar features amazing sunrise views of the back patio, and sunset views from the rooftop viewing deck. The short walk to akumal bay, and Half Moon Bay drew us on nearly a daily basis to snorkel. We saw sea turles at akumal Bay every time we went out. Half Moon Bay had beautiful corals, and fish and the cantina La Buena Vida was an ideal setting to wind up the days during la hora de feliz.For day trips, Akumal, the quiet and secure village is located within a short drive from Playa del Carmen, Tulum, or any number of senotes, theme parks, ruins and golf courses. My wife and I have the good fortune to travel a fair amount. Many of our vacations leave us tired and exhausted, and wishing for more time to recover. Our trip to Casa del Mar in akumal left us relaxed and refreshed. We can not wait to return.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments about your visit to Mexico and your stay at Casa del Mar. It is nice to know that you and your group felt relaxed and safe while visiting Akumal. It will be our pleasure to assist with your return when you are able to travel in the future. Thank you for choosing Casa del Mar for your vacation!
“Spectacular vacation and outstanding services”
We had the chance to take our first vacation out of the us. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We could not have been happier with our choice to stay here. The house gave us that feeling of home away from home with a stunning view of the ocean right outside your window. The home is laid out very well and could easily handle three couples without it feeling cramped or as if you were in each others way. The services provided by the staff were excellent and very accommodating to our request. It was a pleasure to have them come in and did not feel intrusive at all. I cannot say enough about the how if feels to watch the sunrise over the ocean without ever getting out of your pajamas! It would have been more than enough to just stay in the house but the snorkeling there can be addictive and biggest thrill was discovering that the cove just north of the house was usually deserted. There were days when we were the the only people there. It was like living inside a discovery channel show, just awesome and unbelievable all at the same time. I would highly recommend it to all of my friends and we are already planning our return trip for next year. Thanks so much to the Toribio family for have such a gem and being willing to share it with us. Kirk & Kelly Davis Newberg, Oregon USa

“Fantastic Week in Oceanfront Comfort”
Our family of five (2 adults and 3 teenagers) loved Casa Del Mar. Perfect, quiet location oceanfront between akumal Bay and Half Moon Bay. We could easily walk to both bays and enjoy white sand beaches, swimming, snorkeling with turtles, deep sea fishing, massage on the beach and good meals and drinks. Or, we could stay at the villa and enjoy a refreshing swimming pool and a scenic rocky beach with beautiful views up and down the coastline. The staff Jose and Mari were the best. Mari kept the place spotless, did our laundry, and cooked a wonderful meal one night. Jose kept the grounds perfect, cleaned the pool daily and served us fresh coconuts right from the trees in the yard. We always felt safe, and there was also security watching over the villa at night. The home was fully equipped with everything we needed, full kitchen, lots of storage, air conditioning in the bedrooms, safes, beach towels, DVD movies, daily maid service except Sundays. The house was just the right size for our family with three bedrooms and three baths. Also liked climbing the stairs and enjoying the view from the rooftop observatory. We loved Casa Del Mar and have only positive things to say. We miss alkumal already, and hope to return again in the future. Also, Marcia from akumal direct reservations was so easy to work with and we highly recommend her.
Response from the manager Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It is absolutely wonderful that you enjoyed your stay at Casa del Mar. Your comments are very much appreciated. We do hope that you will return to Akumal when your schedule permits another vacation. Thank you for your business!
“What an amazing little casa”
This Casa is just perfect. Perfect location and has such a nice feel. The staff is outstanding. The Casa is so beautifully maintained inside and out. The Casa has everything you would ever need and is in perfect walking distance to akumal. There is no beach, but the view is spectacular. Because it is located on a point, there is always such a nice breeze. The pool is located on the road side, which provides privacy. The Casa holds 6 comfortably. I had the most wonderful 11 days and would return to this Casa in a heart beat!!
Response from the manager Thank you so much for your lovely comments about your vacation experience staying at Casa del Mar. It is nice to know you felt the staff was wonderful. Yes, the house does have a great view of the Caribbean. The pool is protected from the wind and is located on the garden side of the property to ensure guest privacy. We will all look forward to your return!
